Brian Matthew the BBC DJ has passed away. I remember listening to his shows in the early sixties as a child. They helped to form my taste in music. I was happy that a selection from the shows was included on various Beatles CDs and enjoyed his Sounds Of The Sixties shows on Saturday mornings until they were withdrawn around the turn of the year. I guess that at 88 the writing was on the wall, but his voice always gave happy memories.
:angel: Rest in peace Brian :pray:

The BBC had already announced his death a few days ago, only to be told he was still alive.

Brian's voice on 'Saturday Club', and the odour of drying Humbrol paints, are among the most powerful and vivid Proustian portals to recalling my childhood; so sad to hear of his passing. I read his autobiography some time ago, and got the impression he was primarily a theatrical man, and a genuine gentleman.
